Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering

deals with exploration, design, construction, and operations for oil, gas, and other natural resources offshore, especially in risky Arctic and subarctic regions. Climate and geology require highly specialized knowledge to manage drilling rigs and production platforms, whether floating or anchored, and ocean floor pipeline networks. Engineers need skills in wave dynamics, heat transfer, the physical properties of frozen ground and water, safety, and environmental protection.
